Women's News May 23, 2011

Just a short one for today.

A Saudi woman who posted video of herself driving has been arrested.  Actually, re-arrested.  And the Facebook page for women driving in the Kingdom and a Twitter account, are both gone.  A few other women who dared to drive were also arrested.  I guess if women are allowed to drive then you simply won't be able to keep an eye on them all the time.  And who knows what those crazy women might get up to without a man to control their every move! (sarcasm)

A Syrian-American women in Damascus, who is also a lesbian, has started a blog about her experiences.  She was in hiding from the police for a while, and may still be in hiding.  You can read her blog here:  A Gay Girl in Damascus.

Good Luck to all of these women!
